When I was reading Metamorphosis over the weekend, I found the part where Gregor wanted to send his sister to the music conservatory to be especially touching. I actually thought I might tear up for a second. I agree with everything that we said in class about Gregor being such martyr. I believe that Gregor has saint-like qualities. He is in no way selfish as a bug, and does not appear to have been selfish as a human either. His mother even said he worked tirelessly and never went out in the nighttime. It is ironic that he was the one to be turned into a roach when the rest of his family is more spineless and despicable than he. They only seem to care about money for themselves, but Gregor cares about money because he wants to support the family that he so loves.
